Akron Youth Knit Their Bits

The Knit Your Bit program started as an activity during a recent trip of the Summit County Chapter (Akron, Ohio) youth leadership group. While there, the 11 participants learned to knit hats to help them realize the commitment made in the 1940′s by the civilian population to support soldiers. The activity was so popular that the Red Cross Youth Group introduced the Knit Your Bit to the Tallmadge DECA marketing club. The Tallmadge DECA group will have 22 scarves by next fall, and Red Cross youth volunteers will continue to knit hats and scarves for the military, hospital patients, homeless, international refugees and disaster victims.
